Both Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are the pillars of modern physics. Quantum mechanics was created by a number of physicists whereas the special and general relativity theories were solely created by Albert Einstein. Einstein revolutionized theoretical physics. Both the special and general relativity theories have been experimentally verified several times by different researchers. The marvelous predictions of general relativity include perihelion precession of mercury, deflection of light by the sun, gravitational redshift of light, gravitational time dilation, gravitational lensing, the gravitational redshift of light, and the Shapiro time delay, frame dragging, relativistic jets, gravitational vortex, gravitational waves, the sun delaying radio signals, proof from orbiting earth, singularities, black holes, etc. But unfortunately, when scientists apply this to quantum mechanics, they encounter inconsistencies and contradictions. To put in other simple words, Einstein’s general relativity is incompatible with quantum physics. This is one of the burning problems in physics. This shows that there is a gap in the theory. It is to be studied, analyzed, investigated and probed. Several experts doubt the Equivalence Principle of Einstein. The author thought over this for more than a decade and attempted to substitute numerical values to this equivalence principle. The author has come across a curious result. The author believes that further studies may yield a clue for the fine tuning of general relativity.
